Re: Debian equivalent of RH's rc.local?
Hi. If you are using modules for your sound,
you can modify the conf.modules file to run a
program after a module is loaded. The following
is the pertinent line from my conf.modules file:
post-install sb /bin/volume 10
This line runs the volume program with a parameter
of '10' (a low volume) after the sb module is loaded.
This seems like the easiest way to handle the boot-up
loud sound problem (and I'm sure not the only way).
More details can be found in the modprobe manpage.
